[The] supporting cast also gets an upgrade.... while each of these tweaks is relatively minor on its own, all together they put the series in a much better position to succeed than a direct adaptation would.
Cloak & Dagger isn't exactly a show for die-hard comic book purists looking for a live-action translation of the superheroes they love, but that ultimately works out in its favor because that's not what it's trying to be.
